The Virtual Textile Project

Kat Lind

Kat Lind, Chief Technologist of Dragon and Phoenix Software Inc., was the natural choice for partnership with McGill, since this company has developed a patented pattern drafting software line called The Complete Clothier (, which already has the capacity for integrating digital textiles into pattern layouts.
Dragon & Phoenix hosts a commercial version of the Virtual Textile Project. It allows the museums and other textile providers to benefit from a revenue stream derived from images of textiles within their collections and allows Dragon & Phoenix an avenue for recouping their costs associated with production of the Virtual Textile Project.
